Reigning English Premier League champions Man United will sign a deal with Belgian teenager Andreas Hoelgebaum Pereira in January of next year, according to Holland’s media.
Andreas’ father is Marcos Pereira who previously played for Belgian clubs St-Truiden, Mechelen and Antwerp will sign his contract on the 1st of January when he will turn sixteen year old to become part of the Man United U-19 team.
The 15-year-old prodigy of Brazilian origin is a product of the PSV Eindhoven youth system and had been approached by a few large European clubs including Man U’s English Premier League rivals Arsenal, Chelsea and Spurs and Italian side AC Milan.
Pereira was spotted by PSV scouts back when he played with Belgian Lommel several years ago, and is very grateful to the Dutch club for giving him a chance but didn’t think long before accepting Manchester United’s offer.
Man U long-time manager Sir Alex Ferguson made it his personal mission to sign Pereira. He invited the youngster to Manchester United and coaxed him into joining the club personally.
Pereira is considered one of the most talented footballers of his generation. Back at PSV, he received only a small salary. This will change at United where he will get a bigger salary.
Man U have previously snatched Park Ji-sung, Jaap Stam and Ruud van Nistelrooy from the Dutch side.
